The news that Quentin Tarantino could direct the next Star Trek movie sent shockwaves through the nerd world.
One Star Trek vet in particular was excited to hear the news. Patrick Stewart, who is Jean-Luc Picard, is a big fan of the director.
Though the new trilogy of films features new versions of Original Series characters, Stewart told The Hollywood Reporter he would be interested to bring back his Next Generation captain in order to work with the director.
“One of my dreams is to work with Tarantino. I admire his work so much, and to be in a Tarantino film would give me so much satisfaction,” he said. “So, if he is going to direct something to do with Star Trek and there was the possibility of dear old Jean-Luc showing up again and doing that for Mr Tarantino, I would embrace it.”
The actor enjoys Tarantino’s creative filmmaking style.
“The one thing that characterizes all of his movies is that frame by frame, it always challenges, always demands your attention, always demands a very kind of open and generous response to what he does,” he said. “I also love his sense of humor as a filmmaker. So yes, he would be my first choice.”
